Dear Maartje,
Hi! I'm from Southampton, Ontario, and have been working on starting a
school in this area for a few years. I even considered, at one point,
moving to Victoria to start a school there, as I lived there may years
Have you heard of the Windsor House school? It is a public school run
similar to SVS. You can find it on the SERN website or contact:

 Windsor House School
 440 Hendry Avenue
 North Vancouver, B.C.
 Canada V7L 4C5
 Phone: (604) 903-3366
 Fax: (604) 903-3367

Good luck!
Victoria Serda
